Some of HTC smart phones, such as Inspire 4G (Android version 2.3), do not support global languages such as Chinese. Inspire 4G only supports English, Spanish and French. Smart phone has its life cycle, this three years old phone is marginally usable in US, but it still considered a good phone in China. If it supports Chinese or other languages, it can be sold to users in other part of the world. Without supporting more languages, HTC limits phone’s useful life.
An application for older Android phones called “Set Chinese Language” was discovered. The app worked very well – it changed all menu items to simplified Chinese. It was free. It was easy to use – just download the app and click on the “Yes” button. HTC’s default languages can be restored in phone’s setting menu.
